For the Birds

I am still working to keep up with all the challenges out there. 
Exploring Cricut has a challenge to kick off the year called Winter Wonderland. The challenge is to create a winter scene or activity. 


I totally started with something different before I ended up with this design. It is a very simple winter scene but one many of us see it everyday out our window...the birds and the squirrels looking for nibbles under the snow.


Have a great Day!


Here's How I did it....
All paper from my stash
Card base and mat are from CTMH Art Philosophy cut at 5.5"
Tree and layers cut from Jolly Holidays cart
Birds and Squirrel from Winter Woodland cart
Ribbon from Stampin' Up
Sentiment from CTMH Bundled Buddies stamp set
Stickles for that glittery snow on the tree branches

I think it's great! I love how you put the snow just here and there on the tree. That lil squirrel is cute. Love the stitching around the edges....and how it's a scalloped card.

Be Blessed, Beckie
